Using My Stash--September and October

I thought that I had used up a lot of products over the past couple of months but it was less than I thought. I also ended up doing a bit of purchasing of items that I don't need but it's been a while since I've splurged and I think that I've done a good job of using items in my stash so far this year.

On to my used items...

Skin care:

Clarins Double Serum. This is my current favorite and I've been using it for a few months now. Apple Peeling Gel. I really liked this but it's quite strong so I don't recommend using it often. I think once every two weeks to once a month is good. I don't know who I received this from and I only had two packs. I'll need to ask my friend to pick some up for me when she goes back to Korea as I can't find it here. Ole Hendricksen Sheer Transformation sample pack. This was okay but it's difficult to give any kind of opinion because it was just a sample pack that I was able to use only a couple of times.

Face masks:

I have a lot of face masks and wasn't using them. I decided to start using them on the weekends. I have to admit that I wasn't consistent because I went on the trip so I have to try to get back into the weekend habit again.

Foundation and Concealer:

I use Clarins foundation and wanted to try a darker color since I tanned a bit during the summer. I ended up liking the darker shade that I was given and bought the full size. Hourglass Veil Foundation samples were so miniscule that I was able to get only a day's usage. Again, difficult to give any kind of firm opinion but I didn't care for it too much. It didn't seem to work well on me. Sue Devitt Bermuda Triangle Concealer, my HG concealer. I am so sad that Sue Devitt line is no longer being produced so I'll eventually have to find a new concealer that will work as well as this.

Brush Cleanser:

I used up another bottle of Sephora's Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner. I use this to quick clean my brushes every night.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I travel with small sample and travel size products. I will also travel with "older" items that I am ready to throw away, use it on my trip and throw it away on the day that I return home. Not much but it's a little less bulk.

Neutrogena makeup remover wipes, DHC eye cream, Cle de Peau eye cream, DHC primer, Face masks, DHC CoQ10 Facial Film Soap, shampoo and conditioner, Japanese wash cloth and travel shower cap.

I may have given you the VOV mask - I remember you asking me how to use it. Glad you liked it, and I agree that it is best used only once or twice a month!

I love the feeling of finishing up items, because it makes way for new items. :)
